This recipe deserves at least 5 star, it is that good. Made it for dinner tonight, and added some garlic and ginger into the marinade with chicken. Before I cooked the veggies, cooked some minced garlic, ginger and scallions for about 40 seconds, then put the veggies into the pan.

Also used shaoxing cooking wine that you should be able to find in most Asian or Chinese grocery stores. The sweet-sour sauce was a hit, made the dish taste absolutely delicious.

Served it with some brown rice, so yummy. Sean said it almost beat the dish in the best Chinese restaurant in Toronto :) Believe or not, test it out!
